    I wonder if the company that has accquired it will eventually re-establish some shops....
    Mail-ordering Pick-n-mix just isn't quite the same.

    Some of the press release:
    Shop Direct Group Chief Executive, Mark Newton-Jones said:
    “We’re delighted to be bringing back Woolworths in its 100
    th year. We’ve been talking
    to families across the country and have responded with a site that delivers the best of
    what they loved about Woolies, offered across four main categories of Kidswear, Toys,
    Entertainment and Party.
    “Families wanted us to bring back Woolies as soon as possible, so that’s what we’ve
    done. From acquiring the brand to launching it has only been 20 weeks; something
    you could never achieve with a high street business but can do online. We’re aiming
    to create a fun, family web experience which keeps on getting better and better.
    “We are launching today with a significantly bigger selection of products than would
    have been sold in a Woolies high street store and better still, many of the product
    categories will double in size between now and Christmas.”
    The Woolies site will have three shops under one roof: the Main Shop, Entertainment
    and Party. Initially, each will have its own checkout but this will become one

    integrated checkout in the autumn.

    I like the idea of pick and mix but can't imagine anyone actually using it!

    interesting - what's yours like then Mari.

    I'll never forget walking into Woolworths at Key West and being amazed at how different it was from ours - i thought it was great! I had to buy some Band Aids there for a blister I had gained from walking around in my flip flops and I still have the metal tin they came in!

    That was 17 years ago!

    well... its just very run down

    maybe it was part of the international woolworths chain some time ago...

    but they went out of business, and only one survived... and the merchandise is very low quality... not even worth visiting...

    they do have the same logo though
